Our little guy turned 2 not long ago and is into all sorts of things. He loves dinosaurs, construction trucks, lawn mowers, bugs, dirt, and all things boy. He also really, really likes to eat. Unless it’s a vegetable. Which is why we still turn to Beech-Nut® Naturals for help getting in our servings of veggies.
When it comes to kids, anything that works is pretty much the motto. And Beech Nut Naturals still works when it comes to getting our little one to eat his veggies. Why wouldn’t it, though? Beech-Nut® Naturals is real food for babies™.
No matter how old he gets, he’s still my baby.
We’ve been using Beech-Nut® Naturals since our little guy was 6 months old and just starting to eat solids. Made with natural fruits and veggies, gently cooked over indirect heat, all of the varieties of Beech-Nut® Naturals and Organics are Non-GMO Project Verified and without artificial preservatives, colors and flavors. Real food for babies™, so you can be sure that you and your baby are happily fed.
Since getting veggies into our most opinionated of the bunch sometimes takes some ingenuity, here are just a few more tricks to get kids eating their veggies. Because even my older kids have a hard time trying new things at times, too.
Tricks to Get Kids Eating Their Veggies
Hide it – There’s nothing better than small pieces of soft carrot hidden in the mac n cheese. Or cover up your veggie of choice with cheese on a pizza. Everyone likes pizza.
Make it fun – Instead of just adding veggies to a plate, make a character or scene out of it. Take advantage of how broccoli looks like trees, turn a pepper into a pumpkin for Halloween, or blast off with stalks of asparagus.
Dip it – Who can resist a dip? Not even when the only thing there is to dip it with is a celery stick.
It’s really whatever works. And what’s working for us right now, for our little guy, is Beech-Nut® Naturals.
Also available in Organics, you can find Beech-Nut® Naturals at a grocery store near you. Be sure to look for Beech-Nut® Naturals Snack Bars, too!
Tell us about your #infantfluencers!
Since everyone else is an influencer these days, why shouldn’t babies be, too? There is no one greater at voicing their opinion than babies, believe me. Either with a happy clap, evil side eye glance, or a stomp of the feet, I’ve heard and seen it all. And now, Beech-Nut® Naturals wants to know all about your little #infantfluencers for a chance to WIN! More details when you sign up to the Beech-Nut Family!
